Ah, I see, so you are probably an autodidact with regard to your wordsmith capabilities. Good on you.
My wife came from Germany and while her spoken English was quite good, her vocabulary was quite limited. However, over time her vocabulary grew and grew, to the point that it is now immense. The only issue she sometimes has is pronunciation, she is often only familiar with a word in her head. Occasionally I may say something that is not an everyday word, one that she has either never heard or spoken. Or, I pronounce it in a manner she had no idea it sounded like that.
Then we may have a quite interesting digression from whatever we were talking about, with discussion about the new word and its various uses and pronunciations around the English speaking world. As for the original discussion, usually forgotten.
